Crowns are synthetic caps, normally made of a product like porcelain, placed on the top of a tooth.

Crowns are typically used to fix a tooth's function and appearance following a restorative treatment such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has ended up being so advanced that large parts of the tooth needs to be taken out, crowns are often used to fix the tooth.

Crowns are also used to avoid a cracked tooth from becoming worse, connect bridges, cover implants, or an existing filling is in jeopardy of becoming loose or dislocated. Crowns also serve as an aesthetic use, and are applied when a discolored or stained tooth has to be restored to its natural look.

Procedures

A tooth must typically be reduced in size to accommodate a crown. A cast is made from the existing tooth and an impression is made. The impression is sent out to a special lab, which produces a custom-made crown. In many cases, a short-term crown is applied up until the long-term crown is ready. Long-term crowns are sealed in place.

Crowns are often confused with veneers, however they are rather different. Veneers are generally applied only to fairly small areas.

Taking care of Your Crowns

With proper care, a good quality crown might last as much as 8 years or longer. It is very important to floss in the area of the crown to avoid excess plaque or collection of particles around the restoration.

Specific habits such as jaw clenching or bruxism (teeth grinding) considerably reduce the life of a crown. Moreover, consuming brittle foods, ice or hard candy can jeopardize the adhesion of the crown, and even break the crown.

Tooth Whitening

Because having whiter teeth has now become the primary aesthetic concern of a lot of patients, there are a number of methods to whiten teeth. The most popular technique is utilizing a home tooth lightening system that will whiten teeth considerably. Since tooth lightening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is necessary to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, etc. Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching so they will match the newly bleached teeth.

Most dentists utilize numerous methods: customizeded tray lightening, professional strength white strips, and in-office lightening.

The tray approach involves having impressions taken, which the lab fabricates into custom vinyl trays. A carbamide peroxide gel is put in these trays and the trays with gel are worn for about 30 minutes to a full hour. The whole process takes about a week of daily use. Three different strengths of gel may be used, however, the higher the strength, the higher the likelihood of reactions or tooth sensitivity. The tray approach is advised for badly stained teeth, such as tetracycline staining, and it may take multiple months of use to see substantial color improvement.

Our in-office treatment is a extremely quick and hassle-free bleaching procedure. The visit is around one hour including both the preparation and treatment. Our clients enjoy this treatment since it is so simple and fast!

Tooth bleaching is not permanent. A touch-up might be needed once a year and more often if you smoke and/or drink coffee, tea, or wine. For upkeep of whitened teeth the trays ought to be utilized every couple of months.

Reasons For Tooth Whitening:

  • Yellow, brown stained teeth.

  • Normal wear of outer tooth layer.

  • Florousis (extreme fluoridation during tooth development).

  • Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.).
